Whatever decision you make, ensure it’s truly yours and nobody else’s because when push comes to shove it’s your reasons that keep you sane.
I’m gradually learning to say No and not have to give reasons or explanations, learning to unchain myself from the famous chains of “what will people say”.
Relearning that you can’t be friends with everyone and not everyone will like you and it’s OKAY! Surrounding yourself with people who can be real with you is a GREAT move.
Believing in love in all its forms; love of God, love of family, love of friendship and the love of a man and woman.
Refusing to accept the whisper of fears and what they tell me about love and life.
I am also accepting that I have many faults and daily trying to own them, learning not to judge people who fail to see their faults.
Understanding that we all have different learning curves and as much as I want a person to grow, change or improve, I must patiently wait for them to do it on their own!
Accepting that life is filled with lots of disappointments and although therapeutic to wallow in them sometimes, you need to move past it and surge on. Working on facing my fears.
Re-teaching myself that “People use people”. It used to annoy me and ruin great days but now I appreciate the fact that someone chose me to help them, yes help! Swap use for help like I did and you’re good to go!
Starting to love the freedom that comes from not following the rules! I remember how I cringed when I texted first or when I said I like you but oh the freedom it brought. Miss him/her? Tell them! Waiting for them to message first? Heck no! Do it first, not so you win but because games are so not you! I’ve practised living and being free in 2015.
Please I beg of you, your life is to be enjoyed, every single part of it; good, bad, happy, embarrassing, mistakes! Don’t let “what will people say?”, past hurts and most especially FEAR stop you.
Live free and be free without any apologies!
Please like, share and comment, I love hearing from you, it makes my day.
